American Uprising Debuts Today

by dan on January 4, 2011

Today is the publication date for American Uprising. I couldn’t be more thrilled to finally have the book on sale. You can buy it anywhere books are sold and through the links on this website.

I hope that this book will help change the way we think about American slavery by emphasizing the heroism, sophistication, and political organization of the men and women that resisted slavery. Despite tremendous brutality and oppression, the revolutionaries of 1811 fought and died for their freedom and left us with the legacy of their courageous battle. I hope that my book will make the story of the 1811 slave revolt a central one in the history of slave resistance, and that every history textbook and scholarly work on slavery will discuss and deal with Charles Deslondes, Kook, Quamana, and the many other rebel slaves of the German Coast.

I hope you will enjoy the book!

Congratulations, Dan!
I just heard you on Diane Rehm’s holiday rebroadcast of your interview. I’ve been amassing a timeline of Louisiana, from many sources, for years. When i checked it just now, the German Coast rebellion was not in there. Thanks to you, now it is. (Thank you, also, for maintaining veracity on Wikipedia.) And now i have another book to read!
